Railroad traffic jam. Chicago Illinois USA. May 2007.

I took this photo looking east from the South Central Avenue overpass bridge at the Chicago city limits by Stickney Illiniois. An eastbound BNSF Railway intermodal train is waiting on a hold order at Nerska Junction just east of South Cicero Avenue, while a set of Norfolk Southern diesel locomotives running light, are also caught up in this Chicagoland railroad chaos, and have to wait their turn for clearance once the intermodal train finally gets permission to proceed eastbound. This is an everyday behind the scenes look at busy Chicago area railroad opeations.
